### Right Answer is: Bernoulli’s principle

#### SOLUTION

Bernoulli’s principle can be derived from the principle of conservation of energy. This states that in a steady flow the sum of all forms of mechanical energy in a fluid along a streamline is the same at all points on that streamline. This requires that the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy remain constant. If the fluid is flowing out of a reservoir the sum of all forms of energy is the same on all streamlines because in a reservoir the energy per unit mass. The sum of pressure and gravitational potential ) is the same everywhere.

Applications of Bernoulli’s Principle

Dynamic lift:-

Wings of an airplane: The wings of the airplane are having tapering. In an airplane, the top of the wing is somewhat curved while the bottom of the wing is flat. Due to this specific shape of wings when the airplane runs, air passes at a higher speed over it as compared to its lower surface. This difference of airspeeds above and below the wings, in accordance with Bernoulli’s principle, creates a pressure difference, due to which an upward force called ‘dynamic lift’ (= pressure difference area of the wing) acts on the plane. If this force becomes greater than the weight of the plane, the plane will rise up.
